I’ve come full circle with my year of birthstone articles, ending with July’s stone, the ruby. (Just for you, mom — happy birthday!) Through my research, I found the ruby to be quite fascinating. It turns out that throughout history, the ruby was considered the most valuable of all stones, even more than a diamond. In the metaphysical world, it has the highest vibration of all stones, so high in fact, that it’s not a stone commonly used in mediation because it’s too darn energetic. Rubies represent love, passion and prosperity. Though I always think of rubies as red, they can actually range from a paler rose to a deep, crimson red (the most valuable). There can be a cast of orange, blue or purple to them, depending on where they are mined.
When you wear a ruby, here’s some of the qualities it will help you with:
-a clear mind
-brings a sense of adventure
-motivation & high energy
-gets rid of nightmares
-stone of manifestation/following your bliss
Interesting, right?! And to whet your ruby appetite, here’s some stellar pieces of jewelry…

Thanks, Amy❤️ Well I would choose the last ring by Nikos but have to say they are all stunners!
That ring by Nikos Koulis is a pretty cool design, isn’t it? I think we have to go shopping for something new for your birthday! xo
Nikos Koulis gets my vote, too! Gorgeous roundup. Love the Michelle Fantaci bracelet. Sidney Garber’s ring is such an elegant beauty. I want them all!
If only we had bottomless wallets and could buy everything, Andrea!
